All 2020 Summer Camps Will Be Held Virtually
It looks like many of the opportunities and plans we had for our kids will be canceled this summer. Our hope is to help fill the void for your family. Elite Chess has been effectively delivering virtual chess classes since March and we are excited to offer virtual chess camps to the community this summer. Each camp meets daily for one week and all curriculum will be delivered via Zoom in a small group setting. Please email us with any questions. We think you, and your kids, are going to love these camps!
